reporting to Dr. Clark during the 2008 and 2009 programs, by Dr. Ellen Leavitt, CPG,
consulting geologist, during the 2010 and 2011 drilling programs, and by John Ray,
Chief Geologist, during the 2012 and 2013 drill programs. All drill core was
transported from the project site to a locked and secure storage facility each evening
(either the Vista West storage and sample preparation facility, near Sundance, or one
of two storage and sample preparation facilities on East Cleveland Street in
Sundance. No core was left unsupervised on site. The core was logged at the storage
facilities, and successive intervals were split for analysis at these locations. Split core
samples from each drill hole were shrink-wrapped and/or placed in rice bags on
wooden pallets, and then shipped by truck using NPT Transport and UPS to MEG.
The shipper was responsible for delivery to MEG, and Rare Element’s personnel
monitored the progress of the shipment via tracking number. The shipping paperwork
and sample guides were sent to Shea Clark Smith of MEG, who also monitored the
progress of the shipments from the core facilities to MEG, and subsequently to the
analytical laboratories. MEG was responsible for shipment and tracking from the
sample preparation facility to the laboratory. In 2009, Rare Element leased the core
facility in Vista West and transferred all of its 2004 – 2008 cores to this facility from
storage units at Energy Electric in Sundance.
In 2010, Rare Element acquired a secure storage warehouse at 2111 East Cleveland
Street in Sundance and moved drill core, as well as splitting and logging operations to
that location. In April 2012, the Company began leasing the old Energy Electric office
and warehouse building at 2409 East Cleveland Avenue in Sundance, WY. They
moved most of the drill core, plus the splitting and logging operations, to that facility
and conducted core storage, splitting, and logging operations there from 2012 to the
In the authors’ collective opinion, the quality of sample preparation and analytical
procedures, as well as sample security measures, are all of excellent quality and
state of the industry.
